critics in the country. even as a republican, he was talked about as a potential vice presidential running mate for barack obama in the '08 campaign. on the other side, it was interesting. the republican nominee that year, john mccain said that chuck hagel could have a place in a john mccain presidential administration. mitch mcconnell said at the time, quote, in two terms in the senate, chuck has earned the respect of his colleagues and risen to national prominence as a clear voice on foreign policy and national security. so through all of those years, through all of his willingness to criticize his own side on the most highly politicized issues in the country, senator chuck hagel was able to hold on to the good graces of his fellow republicans for all of those years, until now. now they say they are over him, because now republican chuck hagel is looking like the person president obama would like to put in charge of the pentagon. josh rogan at foreign policy first breaking the news on the nomination and noting in the same breath all the republican senators that are against the nomination
